N.A.T. is an Executive Member of PICMG, the PCI Industrial Card Manufacturers Group.

PICMG is a consortium of companies who collaboratively develop open specifications for high performance telecommunications and industrial computing applications. The members of the consortium have a long history of developing leading edge products for these industries.

Founded in 1994, PICMG's original mission was to extend the PCI standard, from the PCI Special Interest Group for use in non-traditional computer markets such as Industrial Automation, Medical, Military and Telecom. With the advent of fabric based transports PICMG specs have continued to evolve. This has resulted in a series of specifications that include CompactPCI®, AdvancedTCA®, AdvancedMC™, CompactPCI® Express, COM Express® and SHB Express®. Each specification has a unique PICMG identifier.

PICMG's purpose is to offer equipment vendors common specifications, thereby increasing availability and reducing costs and time to market.
